That same week, Elon Musk arrived in Austin to petition the state of Texas to allow for legalization of Tesla sales in the state. Matt worked with the press and started meeting with some of the Tesla owners in support of the car company and thus began the Tesla Owners Club of Austin. Starting with Cars And Coffee events, track days at COTA, various club meet ups and an annual party that has grown to nearly 150 attendees this last year. The club has been a labor of love and Matt serves as president and founder, originally of the Central Texas club (San Antonio and Austin combined) and now the spin off of just the Austin division.
While simultaneously growing the club membership to over 2000 members, Matt made time to work a little bit on his business too. Ranked annually, for the last three years, as a top 10 agent for total volume in Austin (per Austin Business Journal) Matt is a powerhouse in the Austin real estate community and has personally transacted over 1100 real estate deals throughout the greater Austin area in his 12 year career.
With deep insight into Tesla and a passion to serve its employees at all levels, Matt and his team are ready to handle all the relocations coming to this great town. Combining an intimate knowledge of the Austin area and deep roots in the Westlake community, the Holm team will provide the essential education, guidance, and negotiation skills to make Tesla employees relocations as easy and smooth as driving down Mopac on autopilot.
In addition to his involvement with the Austin Tesla Owners Club, Anuarbek also co-hosts a popular Tesla Podcast called the “Tesla Geeks Show” with his co-host, Eli Burton, also known as Starman in the Tesla Community and creator of popular comic “The Adventures of Starman”.
Fun fact about Anuarbek, during the Model Y unveil in 2019, Anuarbek convinced Elon Musk to take Tesla Supercharging to his home country of Kazakhstan. So in late summer 2019 Anuarbek accompanied executives from Tesla to Kazkahstan where they helped with the installation of 2 supercharging locations in the country.
Matt is an outstanding agent who consistently goes above and beyond a typical Realtor’s® duties! As first time and out-of-state home buyers, working with Matt always made us feel like we were in good hands. He was clearly a knowledgeable and experienced agent, dedicated to finding us our first home. After we made an offer, Matt remained reliable and guided us through the entire closing process. We are now in our new home and could not be happier! He will be the only agent we use in the future and we highly recommend him to anyone else. Thank you Matt!— Buyer
Stacie was extremely helpful at helping us find the perfect home, she was patient with our schedule as we had a longer window than normal and really wanted to take our time. We felt like we were so picky and had a list of things we wanted in a house and felt like it would be hard to find any we liked, however Stacie took us through tons of homes that all had things we wanted! Once we found our dream home, Stacie helped us to move quickly and made us feel very reassured with the process. The Holm Team at Compass was so incredibly helpful and they provided us with great resources for remodeling both before and after closing! I’ve never had a better Re...— B & L
When my husband and I decided to purchase our retirement home in the Austin area, where our kids and grandkids had recently moved, we didn’t expect as easy of a transaction as we experienced being that we lived out of state! Our expectations were superseded by partnering with a real estate agent like Amy Drummond. She was not only professional with superb attention to detail and responsiveness, she was extremely personable and went above and beyond to ensure we loved the home we found and could picture ourselves creating wonderful memories with family! We have had nothing but success when deciding to purchase our primary home and other investment pr...— Kathy P.
Kaylee did a great job at helping my significant other and I find somewhere to live asap! She was able to help me get around Austin as well to check a few places out which I really appreciated since I didn't have a car to do so. She is a kind person who definitely cares about helping you find the right place. I recommended her to a friend and will continue to do so whenever anyone I know is in need of a new place to live. Thank you again, Kaylee!— Katherine
Carrie has helped me with all my home buys and sales during the last 14 years. I appreciate her expert advice and knowledge of the housing market! I truly recommend her to anyone that needs help! She never hesitates to answer any questions I may have! Thank you, Carrie!— Kathy S.
Sarah is an exceptional real estate agent! She is very diligent and an effective communicator. After meeting with her and discussing the requirements and preferences for my next home, she compiled listings catered to me daily, promptly following up on any listing I expressed interest in. This lady hustles, there's no doubt about that! Honestly I am very impressed with her work ethic, as well as how smooth she made the house hunting experience, despite how stressful it can be. I would absolutely recommend consulting with her if you're looking for a home, as I know I will in the future if needed. Thanks Sarah, you rock!— Brady L.
Matt actually cares about his clients on a personal level. He does everything possible to ensure the buying and/or selling process runs smoothly. I had him sell a house and help me buy a new construction. I don't know what I would have done without him. He is very understanding of the real estate process and is a caring people person. Best Realtor® ever!— Buyer & Seller
We worked with Stacie to buy our new home in Chesapeake during a military move from overseas. She talked with us over Skype, got us a lot of prospective homes and spent all day with us during a short window to walk through houses. The team she works with add a lot of expertise and were invaluable through a really tough sell, and she has personally followed up with us even after the sale helping us get issues straightened out. She has always been easy to get a hold of and even contacted us during a vacation to see how our move in was going. We loved working with her!— Chris
If you want a Realtor® who takes your home buying experience personally, I cannot recommend Amy enough. Her level of diligence, engagement, and high-touch service reflect a true partnership. Amy was available to me every step of the way and often anticipated my concerns and questions before I asked. When we experienced a delay in closing and other hiccups along the way, Amy negotiated win-win solutions with the other side and avoided what could have been a deal breaking situation. She answered every call, quickly responded to every text, kept me informed, and eased my concerns with her knowledge and ability to put out fires. This was done profession...— Lisa F.
My bf and I are relocating to Austin on very short notice. (He was offered a job on a Tuesday, we accepted and are moving within 2 weeks from LA.) It has been stressful to look for places sight unseen, but Kaylee has been Incredible. I found places I liked within the driving distance my bf was comfortable. She went to each place on Monday and took video of each house/with written notes of her feedback. She was detailed and so, so helpful. It's now Wednesday and we've been approved for the application and are filling out the lease tonight. I could not have asked for an easier process. We knew what we wanted and trusted Kaylee in her breakdowns of eac...— Mina
I've worked with Carrie on both purchases and sales in the past, and I've always been impressed with her level of knowledge, patience, and individual care. She goes above and beyond to make sure your real estate goals are met and has creative ideas to make that happen. I found her diligence and positive attitude extremely helpful as the current market could discourage any buyer. She didn't give up until we found the right home in one of my favorite neighborhoods! She also answered my questions promptly and helped make a potentially chaotic process much smoother. I would recommend her to anyone who wants to buy or sell in Austin!— Sarah P.
Sarah is one of the best agents I have ever worked with. Not only was she able to help me sell my property but assisted me in finding my next dream home also. When it comes to real estate there is no one I would ever go to besides her. She was helpful through the whole process and went above and beyond to make sure everything was perfect. Thank you Sarah for everything.— Zhad A.
Matt is fabulous! He is professional and humanistic. Matt is very skillful in the art of negotiation; appropriately assertive and able to balance at the micro- and macro-level. He is extremely responsive and able to make you feel like you are his only client. We look to Matt as the gold-standard for real estate!— Seller
Stacie helped make our first home buying experience a breeze - she was very timely with all communications and kept us informed of every step in the process. We were buying a new construction home, so there wasn't as much negotiation at play, but Stacie gave great advice on all our options and she made sure we asked all the right questions. She was able to recommend a home inspector and loan officer that were both phenomenal - we could not have asked for a better Realtor®!— Chloe
I've worked with Amy Drummond for almost 4 years. From finding my first home to investment properties, I’ve received nothing but respect and transparency from Amy. I always recommended Amy to friends and family and they rave about the great experience she provides to all clients. Amy is an expert Realtor® and I will continue to rely on her for all real estate inquiries.— Samantha E.
Kaylee sold our house in Austin for us. We no longer live in Austin and Kaylee handled everything. The house went through a major remodel that was delayed because of material shortages during COVID. Even during a very busy time in real estate, Kaylee provided immediate responses and we felt like Kaylee always put us first. Highly recommend Kaylee!— Paul
Carrie Mendez is the best! She was thorough and professional and great to work with. She kept us appraised about all aspects of the selling process. Made sure that any concern we had was answered right away. She was honest and forthright - no games. Our house was on the market for less than a week and she was able to get more than the asking price. Her guidance and help were very much appreciated. We will definitely refer family and friends to her and her real estate team!— Felipe G.
Sarah was incredibly helpful in finding a new place! She was always able to be reached and was able to answer any questions I had. Even with a rough market and a lot of competition she was able to find a great place! She was patient and toured multiple properties with me until finding the right one. Will definitely be working with her again in the future!— Kim D.
Matt was absolutely wonderful during our entire house buying process. Matt took Into consideration all our needs, wants, and concerns. Working with Matt was like working with a great friend, we could text him anytime we wanted, whether we had a change of heart or to just ask a simple question. This was our very first home purchase and Matt made the process seamless. Matt kept in touch every step of the way and did all he possibly could for us to get the house of our dreams. Matt was even with us at the closing, and was able to explain things to us in simpler terms. After being in our house for nearly a year we still contact Matt at least once a mont...— Buyer
Can I give more than 5 stars? This gal went above and beyond in every way when we decided to buy our first investment property. She was listening so well, that I bought the house she found, rather than any other house I found. And that's just the start! She was helpful through every stage, making this entire process easy for myself and my husband. We will most certainly be using her again! I have been recommending her as much as possible to friends and family.— Rebekah
We have bought and sold with Carrie several times over the past 7 years, and every time she has provided the absolute best guidance and support. She is always incredibly responsive, and she makes you feel as if you are her only client despite her busy schedule. Our most recent sale with Carrie was of our primary residence in Austin during the pandemic while we moved to Europe. She made an incredibly stressful process go seamlessly from start to finish. Whether it was checking in on the upgrades being done to the house before listing, to managing repairs needed after inspection, all the way to the actual closing on the property. We could not have bee...— Bayley C.
Sarah Simpson was by far the best Realtor® my boyfriend and I have ever worked with. She was very professional, super responsive, knowledgeable and went above and beyond with guiding us through the process, making it as smooth as possible. We highly recommend her! Thanks Sarah!— Christina B.
My husband and I met Matt at an open house and within 5 minutes we knew we had to get his number to help us buy a house. We were first time home buyers with A lot of questions and he was so patient and knowledgeable with the whole process. He found us a new neighborhood we just immediately fell in love with! Matt came with us to help pick out the décor for our new build which I really appreciated because we were clueless! I would definitely recommend Matt to anyone looking to buy or sell a home. He is great from start to finish!— Buyer
We were extremely lucky to get paired with Stacie as our Realtor® for the purchase of our first home. She was friendly, knowledgeable, and easy to communicate with. We never imagined that the home buying process could be so smooth and easy. I highly recommend Stacie to anyone looking for a Realtor® in the Austin, TX area!— Zach
Carrie works in a highly competitive market serving the Austin area. To succeed in this market requires an ability to anticipate and respond quickly with knowledge based on facts, not the prediction, and the ability to not fall prey to the stressors that no doubt come with this level of competition. I sold my house and hardly lifted a finger, except to sign the closing papers. Carrie's active listening skills will play to your advantage; she knows her stuff. I've moved from Texas, and I wish I could have taken her with me. She's that good.— Haven L.
Stacie was very helpful and did almost all of the work herself. As the seller in a different state for most of the sale, I trusted Stacie with the entire sales process, from marketing to closing. This is my second experience with her and not only would I recommend her to other people, but I would also use her for another buying or selling experience.— John
Carrie was my agent in the process of selling and buying a new house. This process was a smooth and enjoyable experience, even with the housing market at this time. Carrie truly cares and listens to your needs and wants. She also went above and beyond to make sure that I had all the information I needed, and she answered all my questions, so I could make the right decisions. She was always available to answer my questions, and she showed me houses that I was interested in. She was thorough and professional, and wonderful to work with. Carrie is such a caring Realtor® and has a good vision. She was patient, kind, and positive. I really appreciate her...— MariCarmen G.

I've worked with Carrie Mendez for the past three years as I've looked for the perfect Austin starter home.

When I did find my perfect home, Carrie was extremely helpful, walking me through the process, quick to respond, and doesn't hesitate to get my questions answered if I had them.

We’ve known Carrie since we moved to Austin in 2016, and she helped us buy our house. Since we were new to Austin, we relied on Carrie to help us find any services we needed, and she always came through with quality recommendations. When we decided to sell, we naturally wanted to have Carrie represent us. She advised us for our preparation and guided us through the sale and closing. We would always want Carrie to represent us in any real estate transactions in Austin and would highly recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell in the Austin area.— Don L.
Carrie has been my Realtor® for over 12 years now. She has helped us buy, sell, lease and most recently helped us buy a lot and secure the contract for a semi-custom build on that lot. What I love best about her, is that she is very calm, and understands exactly what I need, without letting emotions taking over. This process has always been very emotional for me and she always helps me rationally see the pros and cons of every situation, so that I can make the best decision. She has the market knowledge and takes the time to understand her clients' needs. When I was looking to buy an investment property, even though we had already looked at one hous...— Gabriela M.
Carrie, we could not have accomplished this short-term lease and property purchase without your impeccable care, patience, kindness and superior knowledge of Austin Real Estate! You have remained steadfast in your willingness to help us find the right home even when bumps and walls got in our way. God bless you and your lovely family, Carrie - we remain forever grateful— Barb & Rob
Simply put, Carrie is the best Realtor® we've worked with, in Illinois, NYC or Texas. She's smart, kind and intuitive. She gets the market and really knows what to look for even before you're able to articulate it yourself. Call her, you won't be disappointed.— Charlie & Liz
Carrie was a joy to work with. We put together a very unique real estate deal that included a significant amount of work that needed to be done on the property before close. Carrie went out of her way to research permits and land surveys to make sure that we correctly evaluated the property, and could move forward with confidence. It is hard to not become emotionally involved when you find a property that you really love, and Carrie was a great sounding board helping us evaluate whether the risk was worth the reward - especially for a fixer-upper. The construction caused our deal to drag out for over 4 months, and Carrie stayed diligent throughout t...— Blake & Brooke

She continuously put our minds at ease by answering any questions and concerns throughout the home buying process. Carrie's upbeat and fun-loving personality made her a joy to be around. We not only found a beautiful home but we also made a dear friend. If we are ever in the market to buy or sell a home, we know exactly who to call and who will work endlessly in our best interest. Carrie Mendez not only knows the ins and outs of the real estate game, but she also cares about her clients!— Holly & Dave R.
You will not regret it if you ASK for CARRIE MENDEZ to represent you! She is everything you need in a real estate agent and more. I've been a home buyer four times and have had excellent agents, and I promise that Carrie is impeccable. She is trustworthy, experienced, friendly, and respectful of your needs and situation. Furthermore, I am an out-of-state buyer, and I could not have been more impressed by Carrie's above-and-beyond service of my questions and needs. She prioritizes you. Whether I called, emailed, or texted, in the morning, middle of the busy afternoon, or at night, Carrie would reply in a friendly, professional manner. She is gracious...— Helen H.
Having recently moved to Austin, my wife and I needed an experienced, knowledgeable real estate agent. We were lucky to find Carrie Mendez. Her knowledge and familiarity with the Austin area are tremendous and in the local market that is essential. Several times we went to see new listings and found they already had several offers. She tirelessly continued to search for the right home for us. When we found the house we wanted, Carrie guided us through the closing process, recommending a terrific lender and title company. Just before the closing date, we had a medical emergency, and Carrie arranged for all parties to meet at the hospital to sign pape...— Donald K.
Carrie Mendez found us exactly what we were looking for, in the right part of town for the right price and guided us through the process from offer to closing and beyond. In a very competitive market, where no property worth having stays listed for long, Carrie never made us wait for a response or to jump on an opportunity before it passed by.— David N.
Carrie helped us find and finalize the purchase of two new properties in a short period of time. We ran into some unique problems, which she handled without a hitch. I have worked for major corporations for years and have never known anyone who follows up on everything better than Carrie. She is always cheerful but can be really tough when needed. You can tell by her enthusiasm that she enjoys helping people find what they are looking for.— Linda N.
My experience working with Carrie Mendez was nothing short of excellent, and I would strongly recommend her as a home broker. My story is not unique to this town; after moving my business from the West Coast, I wanted to purchase an above median price multi-bedroom home within proximity to downtown Austin in a seller's market. Carrie puts her clients first. Period. She has in-depth knowledge of Austin and surrounding areas, solid real estate execution skills, is highly responsive and is a tireless advocate of your interests. Her advice was right on the money even running counter to what could generate her a larger or faster sale. Her pre-selected ho...— Christopher C.
Carrie has helped us find our past two homes now. She is the ultimate Realtor® with every desirable attribute wrapped up in one person. In such a hot market, Carrie was able to meet us to look at homes super fast to make sure we did not miss anything. She was extremely flexible and incredibly supportive. Carrie showed us such patience through this process, which took a lot, as we dragged our feet for several months. Carrie also was emotionally supportive through our process of indecision, worries, confusion, and excitement over such a big purchase. She helped to calm our fears and was really \with\" us every step of the way. Carrie has a big heart a...— Sara A.
My wife and I just moved to Austin. The best decision we made by far in planning our move was to work with Carrie Mendez. She begins her bio by stating a personal principle: I believe that a house becomes a home only when you can imagine the story of your life unfolding within its walls. In our case, her principle has translated into our reality. Carrie epitomizes for us what a real estate agent should be and do: her knowledge of the Austin area is encyclopedic; her ability to listen and to understand her clients' needs is exemplary; her professionalism, competence and ethical standards are admirable; and the results she has delivered for us far exc...— Josep & Adriana
Carrie was a huge help in my search for a home, both in renting and buying. Before I moved to Austin, she found me a great downtown condo to live in. After I settled in Austin, Carrie was very patient in helping me find just what I was looking for in terms of a house to buy. When that changed to looking for a condo, she was proactive in helping me to find a place before it went on the market, thereby ensuring that I was the 1st one to put in an offer, which is so important in today's competitive Austin housing market. Thanks, Carrie!— Suzie G.
Carrie is so personable and amazing to work with! She was able to secure two offers within one day of listing. Her responsiveness is top notch, and she was selfless in making sure we have all the answers I needed. I would highly recommend her!— Annie W.
My wife and I accidentally stumbled across this real estate team while we were joy riding the Austin countryside trying to decide where we might live during our transition into the Austin area. We ventured into an open house and met the most wonderful agent. Carrie Mendez was the person who introduced us to the future home we decided to place a bid on. The fact it was one of two we ventured into didn't change the fact she was outstanding during the bid process, inspection, financing, and closing. She handled every detail and ensured a smooth transition. We can't say enough good about Carrie and her work during a difficult transition. We were trying ...— Dr. Jay Z.
